What's really going on in America with so many historic statues being tore down? Some statues that have been around for 100's of years.

Are people trying to change our history by tearing down landmarks & rewriting history books?

Tearing down statues in America

Personally I think it's crazy and barbaric to tear down historic statues, put up by the governments across the nation and tore down by protesters.

I heard a buzz that some statues of Jesus may be torn down because some are not politically correct.

Statue of Satan

 The Satanic Temple unveils its statue of Baphomet, a winged-goat creature, at a rally for the first amendment in Little Rock, Ark. on Aug. 16, 2018.


And what about this statue that was put up only 2 years ago? How would anybody know what Satan looks like accept what we read and see in books.

Let me get this straight, tear down statues of soldiers that fought for our country and replace them with statues of the Devil ... 


I am very confused and have Mixed feelings on tearing down statues in America.

Most must have been D- or grade F History students , because they have torn down or defaced people who were not racists

Good afternoon Robert Vegas Bob Swetz - very well said.  This is madness.  It has to be stopped.

I also have mixed feelings about tearing down the statues.  Slavery was the rule of the day from the time of the Pharoahs until 1865.  Thank goodness that time has passed.  That being said, to ignore the good works many of these men performed in the founding of this country, shouldn't happen either.  I'd prefer they remain in place as teaching moments of the good, the bad and the ugly!
